Well, but it comes on the default Aurora install which is built from the AOSP, seems weird to have superfluous stuff even when dzo and everyone else clearly showed concerns about RAM issues.
I've uninstalled some less important apps, rebooted and the Wiper is no longer taking some RAM, still I bet it'll show up sooner or later.
Now I have >90MB free and the phone is clearly more fluid. It's been a while since I used a 2.x ROM but using this phone on Aurora with the free RAM below 70MB is pure masochism!
Too bad this phone doesn't come with 768MB or 1GB of RAM... I'm already used to charging everyday so the battery isn't a big issue... but lag and stuttering really makes me throw the phone out the window.
